PreSchool-Grade 2?Youngsters will enjoy making the acquaintance of Newt in these three easy-to-read adventures. In the first episode, the sportily dressed salamander learns to appreciate the wonders of nature and discovers the beauty of friendship, all in one perfect day. Then the newt finds a strange, fuzzy insect on his doorstep and, after much speculation, realizes that the bug has some positive qualities even though it is not strong, talented, or beautiful. In the final vignette, Newt strikes up a conversation with the rising moon, allaying its fears and paving the way for a peaceful sleep. The bright and lively artwork and straightforward text make this reassuring easy reader a winner.?Gale W. Sherman, Pocatello Public Library, ID
